FW: javascrip < failing the validator

The following html fails, I have removed as much of the original as possible
to still produce the error.

The following errors were reported

..  WarningLine 10, Column 18: character "<" is the first character of a
delimiter but occurred as data 

                       for(i = 0 ; i < number; i++){ 

This message may appear in several cases: 

*	You tried to include the "<" character in your page: you should
escape it as "&lt;"
*	You used an unescaped ampersand "&": this may be valid in some
contexts, but it is recommended to use "&amp;", which is always safe.
*	Another possibility is that you forgot to close quotes in a previous
tag.

..  ErrorLine 10, Column 18: StartTag: invalid element name 

                       for(i = 0 ; i < number; i++){ 

line one

NOTE: Whenever possible, give the address of the document you were checking.


BELOW IS THE CODE That fails:

Any help would be appreciated.
